A new analyst note suggests that Apple will bring Wi-Fi 6E to the iPhone 15, bringing the device in line with other Apple devices such as the Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and iPad Pro.
Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley shared a research note, viewed by MacRumorswhich suggests that Apple will add Wi-Fi 6E support to its upcoming iPhone 15 series.
At the moment, it is not yet decided whether support will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Wi-Fi 6E works on the same 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands that Wi-Fi 6 does, but also works above the 6GHz band. This enables faster wireless speeds and less signal interference. To use the 6Ghz band, devices must be connected to a Wi-Fi 6E router.
The iPhone 14 series has standard Wi-Fi 6, despite previous rumors suggesting it would see an upgrade.
The iPhone 15 is expected to be released at the Apple Event in the fall of 2023, and analysts have already started making predictions for Apple’s next generation of smartphones.
Some believe that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will have a 3-stacked sensor and 48-megapixel wide-angle lens, the same as the iPhone 14 Pro models.
As for the high-end iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, some analysts expect Apple to add a 12-megapixel periscope lens aimed at improved optical zoom.
Both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to have an A17 chip built with TSMC’s 3-nanometer technology, 8 gigabytes of RAM and a new titanium frame.
